Paul Neyron rose 2

Wednesday so far

I turned the computer off around 11:00 p.m., I think.  I started rereading "borne like a vapor."  I went to bed around 1:30 a.m.  I don't think it took me a very long time to get to sleep.  I got up at 10:00 a.m.

Mom and Dad and I went to the local senior center.  Mom learned when they played bridge.

I went to Dr. B., my GP, for the poison ivy, because it looked nasty and I didn't want it to get bad like it did a few years ago.  She said it wasn't infected, and prescribed a steroid cream.  She told me to come back if it got worse.  So far this time, it is just on my arm.

I chatted with Riah for a while.  She hasn't found a new fandom to get into like she got into Glee.  The Avengers and Musketeers haven't replaced Glee for me, but I read the fic and enjoy the movies and the show, respectively.

I chatted with Jamie for a bit.  I told zir I had gotten to the pool yesterday, and what I'd done so far today.

I went out and smelled the roses.  I cut blossoms of 'Konigin von Danemark', 'Maiden's Blush' and 'Mme. Isaac Pereire' and put them in with the 'Ispahan' rose.

Later: I remembered that I'd gotten poison ivy badly towards the end of season two of Glee, when I'd first started watching.  I found my entries of May 2011, where I chronicled it.  I wrote about oozing sores, a swollen arm and leg, and part of my arm being dark red.  Somewhere I learned that bad poison ivy could look like a chemical burn, and that's what my arm looked like.  I thought I'd have some permanent scars from that, but eventually they faded.  Dr. B. said at the time that if the oral antibiotics didn't help with the cellulitis, I should go to the hospital.  They helped, though.

I texted with J.-PA a bit.

Later still: I got Phoenix, and I haven't even read Doves yet.  This will give me more incentive to read Doves.

Vo updated the Winter Soldier A/B/O.

The 'Maid of Orleans' sambac jasmine has four flowers open.
